Scheduling procedures with a 2-month gap versus 3-months?

Recommended Posts

(Photos after this)

Would you not recommend scheduling a second subcision/phenol CROSS 2 months after my first one? It makes sense to think that you'd want more healing before damage to get the best results.

It's more of an issue of scheduling since I'll be doing a 3-month creative residency soon and I want to get something in right before because I won't have any days off. Or, should I hold off and allow a 5month gap between the 1st and 2nd treatment? Are there any other procedures you recommend I do at the 2 month mark, or should it be dead-pan rest & heal until the 5th? Is CROSS something I should be doing more frequently than 3 months if I have a lot of ice pick scars particularly concentrated on the nose?

Thank youu  :)

Here's where I am right now about a month and a half into my 1st procedure of subcision/phenol cross/microneedling.







These are taken at the same time, just with different natural lighting angles.

2 - Month gap for Phenol Cross can be ok. They are not going to treat all the scars at once anyways and you rotate through treating them. If they are nearby they can join.

2 months fit's your schedule, ... next time you can do three. See how you heal, that is a important factor. 

The nose is a hard area to heal. It can look worse before better. The scars can widen (and one needs a few sessions). The end game is resurfacing after Cross.
